Chalabi returns as Deputy PM
: "King Abdullah of Jordan has agreed to pardon Ahmed Chalabi, the controversial Iraqi political leader, who was sentenced to 22 years in prison for fraud after his bank collapsed with $300m (£160m) in missing deposits in 1989. Jalal Talabani, the Iraqi President, asked the king to resolve the differences between Jordan and Mr Chalabi, now Deputy Prime Minister of Iraq
,.. Again Mr Chalabi has escaped not only political annihilation, but has emerged from a crisis with his power enhanced." 11:59:43 PM
